Mooncake Surprise

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I hope you had a lovely time. As for us, we spent 3 days up in Genting but I shall blog about that later because first, I need to shower. It has been 3 long days since I last had a nice, warm shower. It was too cold to shower up there but no worries, I’m pretty sure I did not stink!  :-P

Anyway, we were up there with a couple of Nuffies and several other Nuffnang Bloggerati bloggers (and their families) for a great adventure but as I said earlier, I shall blog about that soon but not today because today, I want to share my mooncake happiness. After 3 awesome days up in Genting, we finally bid farewell to everyone but to my surprise, the Nuffies handed me a bag of mooncake from Pensonic. It caught me by surprise because we were up in Genting not for a Pensonic campaign but somehow their mooncake made their way to me. It was very touching lah to have clients remembering you and appreciating you like this..

Pensonic mooncakes

Mooncakes from Pensonic

Their mooncakes are from Hauwaytian. The flavours I got were Noble Delight and Shanghai Single Yolk mooncake.

The paste in Noble Delight Mooncake is made of pitaya fruit or what I think is more commonly known as Dragon Fruit? Coz I saw the ingredient list and googled and yeah it looks like dragon fruit.

We love this Noble Delight mooncake. There’s wild yam in it too I guess. The pitaya paste is not too sweet and it complemented the single yolk well. I’ll most likely buy this next year if they still have it because this is really nice and it is priced at RM16.50 only.

It has been a while since I last had Shanghai mooncakes so I thought I’ll love this most of all but I ended up prefering the Noble Delight instead as that one is really delicious; smooth and fragrant. I find the pastry of this Shanghai mooncake a little bit dry though but Ethan still loves it.

Ethan enjoying eating mooncakes. He loves mooncakes. Give him any mooncakes and he’ll be a happy camper!

Tai Thong Durian snow skin mooncake

Oh I also have this Snow Skin Durian Coulis mooncake from Tai Thong. It was given to us by my sister in law. So sayang to eat leh! But still have to eat what if not sia-sia basi only so maybe tomorrow we’ll eat this lah. Ethan won’t touch this though as that boy dislike durian…

Playing lantern

Tonight, eventhough we are still quite tired having just arrived home from Genting, we still brought the kids out to play lantern because Ethan insisted on it. We wanted to get our neighbour’s kids to join us but they are suspiciously quiet at home. I think it’s because the eldest boy will be sitting for his UPSR exam this Tuesday hence the silence.

So yeah, that’s about it. Our mooncake celebration. Before I sign out, here’s the lantern decor in First World Hotel Genting.

    Happy Moon cake Festival to you and family!
    Pensonic moon cake? What’s that? They diversified their business into moon cakes? @.@
    I love Shanghai moon cake too, but only Restoran Oversea’s version. Others not so nice.

    Here’s wishing you and your family a Happy Mid Autumn Festival one day late! Good to see you both accommodate Ethan to play with his lantern. Nice lanterns in Genting Highland.
